Harry Potter is single again, ladies. Well, maybe not Harry Potter — but the man who played him throughout the series is. Daniel Radcliffe is apparently single and ready to mingle after breaking it off with his long-term girlfriend, Rosanne Coker.
How do we know? Her father confirmed it.
"Rosie's not in this country at the moment," he told the U.K. Daily Mail. "She's trying to move on. She won't want to talk about it.'"
It's an abrupt turn of events for Radcliffe and Coker. The pair met while Coker worked as a production assistant on the two-part Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 2007. They officially stepped out together last year in New York City.
The Broadway actor even gushed about his gal in an interview with the New York Daily News.
"I wasn’t trying to keep it secret, that’s the thing," he said in February of their relationship "Everyone’s like, ‘Wow, how did you keep that so quiet? I wasn’t trying to. I just do my job and I go home, we go out to a restaurant but we don’t go anywhere that there’s going to be paparazzi."
"We don’t go to clubs, we don’t really go to bars. So, we just kind of hang out with friends and have dinner. There was never a concentrated effort to try and conceal her from the world, but that’s just how it ended up. It just sort of happened that way in the end."
He even talked of marriage.
"When growing up, I thought of marriage as being very official, drawing up a contract. It seemed slightly clinical to me," he told Parade magazine.
"But then you meet somebody that you really love and you think 'actually, I wouldn’t mind standing up in front of my friends and family and telling them how much I love you and that I want to be with you forever.'"
So, what happened? It sounds like the classic "other woman." Life & Style reported last week that Radcliffe hooked up with his Kill Your Darlings co-star Erin Darke, 28. That apparently ended, though.
"Erin thought it was a real relationship, going as far as introducing Daniel as her boyfriend," the source told Life & Style.
"He’s flown her out to London and taken her on dates and spent plenty of time with her in NYC, but Daniel just up and left New York without a second thought. Erin was devastated!"
Sounds like someone isn't ready to settle down yet!
